Millennia before Rideau was established, the site of our Viognier planting was underwater and teeming with aquatic life. This mineral-rich ancient riverbed soil now supplies our estate fruit with plenty of nutrients, allowing it to complete fermentation with nothing but the wild yeasts that propagate naturally on the berries.
Ripened by the warmth of our Santa Ynez Valley sun, notes of fresh melon, white flower, and honeycomb abound while our ancient riverbed soils impart a mineral-driven structure that compliments the fruit beautifully. Stainless Steel aging allows these characteristics to integrate with exceptional clarity.
